Winemaker Notes

Wholly darker than it's Cabernet-centric cousin Tapteil, Camerata is deep, brooding, and intensely perfumed. Black cherries, plums and raspberries lurk along with minerals and spice. The most enjoyable part of the palate is the rich, glycerin mouth feel playing off of perfect acidity. Tannins are long, fine and very present even with the caressing mid-palate texture.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Ben’s Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend from his estate vineyard, the 2010 Camerata Cara Mia Vineyard, checks in at 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and then equal parts Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Perfumed and complex aromatically, with plenty of blackberry, blueberry, violets and resinous herb qualities on the nose, it is beautifully constructed on the palate with a layered, rich texture, juicy acidity and ripe tannin that emerges on the finish. While the most structured and firm of Ben’s 2010s, it still dishes out plenty of pleasure even now. Enjoy bottles over the coming decade. Drink now-2024.

Wine Enthusiast
From the estate vineyard, this is a blend of three-quarters Cabernet Sauvignon, with the rest evenly divided among Cab Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Lovely aromatics introduce a sleek, tightly wound wine with crisply defined berry fruit, good tannins, and hints of clean earth. It was aged in 50% new French oak barrels.

Wine & Spirits
The cool 2010 vintage on Red Mountain has been yielding wines that take their time unfurling, as does this blend of 76 percent cabernet sauvignon with cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot. The fruit seems distant at first, as if on a receding horizon, but with air the wine comes into view, dusty mineral tannins supporting a purple core, all working with great balance and poise—it just needs a little time to knit.

Red Mountain Wine

Yakima Valley, Washington

View all products

A coveted source of top quality red grapes among premier Washington producers, the Red Mountain AVA is actually the smallest appellation in the state. As its name might suggest, it is actually neither a mountain nor is it composed of red earth. Instead the appellation is an anticline of the Yakima fold belt, a series of geologic folds that define a number of viticultural regions in the surrounding area. It is on the eastern edge of Yakima Valley with slopes facing southwest towards the Yakima River, ideal for the ripening of grapes. The area’s springtime proliferation of cheatgrass, which has a reddish color, actually gives the area the name, "Red" Mountain.

Red Mountain produces some of the most mineral-driven, tannic and age-worthy red wines of Washington and there are a few reasons for this. It is just about the hottest appellation with normal growing season temperatures commonly reaching above 90F. The soil is particularly poor in nutrients and has a high pH, which results in significantly smaller berry sizes compared to varietal norms. The low juice to skin ratio in smaller berries combined with the strong, dry summer winds, leads to higher tannin levels in Red Mountain grapes.

The most common red grape varieties here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, among others. Limited white varieties are grown, namely Sauvignon blanc.

The reds of the area tend to express dark black and blue fruit, deep concentration, complex textures, high levels of tannins and as previously noted, have good aging capabilities.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
